Laced lbd

Dress: Tobi | Sandals: ShopMCE | Bag: KateSpade

As mentioned on Instagram, this dress is THE perfect combination of cute and comfy!
I am a huge fan of dresses that I can wear and eat a cheeseburger [or two] in, and still feel fabulous.

I am so in love with the lace details on this dress, it adds that perfect amount of flare to this LBD.
Score this dress and tons of other adorable stuff over at www.tobi.com

The bag I'm carrying is vintage Kate Spade, I got it years ago, and honestly forgot I had it.
How cute is it though? As soon as I saw it lying in my closet, I knew I had to carry it with this look!

Ohhhhhh these sandals, these sandals are from ShopMCE.com and they are undeniably adorable. 
However I won't lie, they do rub your heel on the back, BUT that can be easily fixed.
They also run a little bigger, so if you're going to order yourself some, order at least 1/2 size down!

I wore this little number to my beautiful sister in laws bridal shower this past weekend.
It was a couples shower and I had the pleasure of being one of the hostesses!
Kyle's aunt decorated the place and holy guacamole it was STUNNING!

I've got a busy next few weeks ahead of me!
Doing my stores closeout sale this weekend, then have a bachelorette party next weekend.
Hope everyone is having a w o n d e r f u l week so far! 


Have no fear, Spring is near

Top: Tobi | Jeans: Amuse Society | Shoes: Nordstrom (similar) | Clutch: Kate Spade

In other news, we celebrated my sweet husbands birthday this weekend. 
He turned the big 2-8, and I seriously think he gets better looking every day...
His nana cooked us all a delicious meal and then we went to a little bar in 
North Texas to continue the celebration!
He has been working his butt off lately, and I am seriously SO thankful he's mine.
We've been house hunting like crazy and have already put 4 offers in on houses,
but it just hasn't worked out yet. Which is fine, because I know God has a perfect plan for us.
But sheesh we are just SO ready to be settled in somewhere. 
Just working on being patient and knowing it will happen when it's meant too!

We're heading to the rodeo tonight with some friends to see Sam Hunt,
So I'll be back here tomorrow with a full report on how the concert was, 
what outfit I wore, 
and how many corn dogs I ate!

Stay tuned lovers, 


Seeing the good.

One thing i've always known, but really realized this year,
 is that, everyone, every single person is fighting some sort of battle.
Some may be big, and some may be small, 
and some may be small but seem big to that individual.
But it doesn't matter.
Something may seem super simple and small to me, 
but it could feel like the world is ending to someone else.
We all have our struggles, and none of them look the same.

This year I really want to try and keep that in mind at all times.
For whenever i'm frustrated with a friend, 
or family member, or confused by someones actions.
Instead of jumping to conclusions or assuming the worst,
I just want to remember and remind myself that we're all human,
and half the time have no idea what we're doing...
and half the time we're just trying to make it through the end of the day.

Sometimes it's hard not to make assumptions, 
or judge, or feel jealous, and that's just human nature.
But this year my goal, starting today, is to see the good.
To fully embrace myself, flaws and all, and be thankful for what God has blessed me with.
To stop looking at others in jealousy.
To search for the good in every situation. 
To comfort my friends/family in whatever battle their facing.
To not compare peoples battles but help them overcome them. 
To trust God fully, and not constantly rely on myself.
To give back, to those who are in need and those who have given to me.

It may not be the very beginning of the year,
but it's never too late for a fresh start.


Good things to come..

Y'all, there has been SO much running through my mind the past few months.
So much stress, so much worry, so much wondering what people are going to think.

But after a lot of thought and prayer and hard conversations,
i've officially decided that I won't be re signing my lease on my store.
The opportunity to have my storefront came at such a perfect time in my life,
having a store front for a year was EXACTLY what I needed last year.
It was such a positive experience and I have learned and grown SO much from it.
Although it was SO much fun dealing with customers face to face,
and meeting SO many incredible and sweet women,
Plaza just wasn't the place for my business.
I'll be leaving at the end of March.
I'll be continuing to sell online, and I'll be doing pop up shops around Texas
as frequently as possible!
AND I now offer FREE shipping on all US orders!

With all that being said, i've got some other exciting news!
If you follow me on instagram i'm sure you've already heard,
I'm now doing photography part time!!!
I have always loved taking photos of anything and everything.
I love capturing moments & making memories last forever.
If you live in the Houston area, or anywhere in Texas,
I would L-O-V-E to shoot you or your family!

Go ahead and click here to see some of my work & get pricing info.
Thanks for all the love & support y'all!


Goals and Resolutions

Sweater: ShopHopes | Pants: LuLus | Boots: Similar

I was one, along with a million others, who were just totally ready for 2016 to be over. 
Now don't get me wrong, it wasn't all bad.
2016 was absolutely a growing year for me, and honestly,
growing is hard y'all!
In 2016 I opened my very first little store space.
and holy crap I have learned SO much about my business and relationships and
just myself personally.

So as most of you know Kyle and I have been trying for a baby,
and well, it's just not happening for us right now...
So this past month I made a promise to myself,
If my period came -- I would stop thinking so much about a baby,
and put ALL of my time,  energy and focus into my store and getting back in shape.

I'm sure all of you know I opened my online boutique a few years ago,
it's my baby, and it's something i'm very proud of.
it seems like everyone and their damn cousin has an online boutique these days.
BUT i'm happy to say that I was one of the originals. 
And this year my goal is to get back to where I was when I first started.
So if you're one of my day one's - don't leave me now!
I've got a few ideas up my sleeve for my store and can't wait to share them with y'all!
--Stay Tuned!--


Engagement Season

I took a little break from blogging the last few weeks,
and I feel like I have SO much to fill y'all in on!

But the most exciting thing is...
My little sister got E N G A G E D!!!!
I had the honor of hiding and capturing the moment for them,
It seriously meant so much to me that Michelle's fiancĂ© 
trusted me to play such a big role on their special day.

Here's a little tiny glimpse.

After the proposal he had all of her closest friends and family waiting to surprise her.
He did SUCH a great job!

It is officially engagement season y'all!!
